New Community Centre Coming Soon!
The ground floor of Lyra Court has been granted on a long lease to Acton Community Forum (ACF) by the developers of the site. The space has been handed over to the ACF as a shell and is not currently in a fit state to accommodate much in the way of activity. A business plan for the future of the space has been developed and ACF is working on a strategy to secure funding to implement their longer term vision for the building which could deliver: reception area, community café, community space and toilets.
Address: Block B Lyra Court, Portal Way, Acton, London W3 6BX
In the meantime, Acton Arts Forum (AAF) has been asked by ACF Trustees & with agreement of the Landlord to take forward the development of the space. Rather than an empty shell that residents and the developer find detracts from the aspirations of the area, AAF plan to animate the space and bring it to life with arts, exhibitions, community activities, and events.
Animating the empty space offers up an invitation to local residents, the arts community, students and businesses alike to appreciate and experience the potential of the space as a focus for creative community activity.
